    Here's the piece I found many years ago. It was on an old property that dated back to the late 1700's. It later became a dairy farm.
  4. Discovered this today in a load of landscaping rocks. Can anyone help identify?

    I found a very similar one years ago. I posted it on TN. It was ID'd as slag. I still have it in my display case. I was looking for my old post to hopefully send you the link, but it won't open. Neat find.

    I've always been told if you have the larger of the two halves the bank will take it. Either way, the American dollar is certainly shrinking.

  18. Got out to the location of a long closed park.

    Like an idiot, when we moved from Raleigh to the NC mountains I gave my whole book of property owner contacts to a guy I detected with sometimes. I thought I would never need it again and was just being a nice guy. I wish I had it back. He said he "lost it". Lesson learned I guess. I am working...
  19. Got out to the location of a long closed park.

    Glad to hear you are doing well Merf. The new and improved Merf is still kicking butt out there. My time away was because we moved to the NC mountains (less activity here) , a few other workshop hobbies covid, , and two new grandkids. Looking forward to getting back into it.
